We encourage you to read this guide to explore the outstanding educational opportunities being offered by our local advertisers for next year and beyond in the Canberra region.
An education with purpose
Located in the leafy surrounds of Red Hill, St Bede’s Primary School (Kinder to Year 6) provides a learning environment with a focus on creativity and individual growth – academic, emotional and spiritual.
Principal Julie Douglas said St Bede’s is known as a small school with a big heart and with emphasis on pastoral care.
“We focus on building caring and respectful relationships between teacher and student, and students and their peers, to promote a sense of belonging and self-esteem,” Ms Douglas said.
“The older years care for the younger years and the younger years look up to the older years. They all just love playing together,” Lauren, a parent at Red Hill said.
With small class sizes, St Bede’s students are all known individually, their support is tailored, and leadership opportunities are available for everyone.
“When families visit our school, they fall in love. Unfortunately, we are currently unable to hold face-to-face tours or information sessions due to COVID-19. However, we would still love to meet you online, get to know your family, and show you what our school has to offer,” Ms Douglas said.
